panish Peaks Scout Ranch

The Spanish Peaks Scout Ranch (SPSR) is located near Walsenburg, Colorado and borders the Spanish Peaks Wilderness. It is a local council camp of the Santa Fe Trail Council, Boy Scouts of America based out of Garden City. The camp gives program geared toward outdoor education such as wilderness backpacking, climbing, and outdoor skills.

panish Peaks Staff Association

Spanish Peaks Staff Association (SPSA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to connecting current, former, and honorary staffers of Spanish Peaks Scout Ranch (SPSR). The organization was formed by like-minded staff alumni committed to the continued support of SPSR and the love of outdoor education for youth. Although the Spanish Peaks Staff Association is not an alumni association the members have all worked with this Scout camp and are dedicated toward outdoor education for youth.

Purpose

The Spanish Peaks Staff Association, although still in their infant stages, has adapted the purposes of:

(a) Demonstrating support for Spanish Peaks Scout Ranch and its continued value in the future.

(b) Providing vision and leadership for Spanish Peaks Scout Ranch.

(c) Raising volunteer and financial support for Spanish Peaks Scout Ranch improvement endeavors.

(d) Establishing an endowment that will guarantee the future stability of the SPSR independently of Santa Fe Trail Council operations.

(e) Establishing an endowment that insures continued funding of a full-time ranger at Spanish Peaks Scout Ranch.

(f) Providing a forum for past, present, and future staffers to gather, share ideas, and stay in contact.

tructure

The Spanish Peaks Staff Association (SPSA) is independent of the Santa Fe Trail Council and Spanish Peaks Scout Ranch. They are, however, dedicated to the youth of southwest Kansas and promotion of outdoor education. The organization was chartered in 2006 as a response to a struggling economy and the Santa Fe Trail Council's Board deficit. The lack of the council's ability to secure funds for operating expenses led to SPSA's motivation and primary goal of securing funds separate of the council.
